Jersey welcomes visitors with relaxation of isolation requirements

The Government of Jersey has announced further updates to the island’s Safer Travel Policy providing greater access to the island to more visitors who have been fully vaccinated from Tuesday 13th July.  

The new updated policy will now allow visitors an even easier escape from the UK with the island welcoming more visitors through its hassle-free updated policy. Jersey will now allow fully vaccinated arrivals to travel to the island without requiring isolation, as well as no quarantine regulations in place when returning home. Those not fully vaccinated will only require taking a free PCR test on arrival, with minimal isolation until receiving a negative test result on day 0. 

All Safer Travel Policy updates to come into effect from Tuesday 13th July: 

  • Countries and regions will no longer be assessed based on a Green, Amber or Red traffic light system 
  • Testing and isolation requirements will be based on passenger vaccination status 
  • Passengers who are fully vaccinated arriving in Jersey will only be required to undergo one test on arrival and will not be required to isolate 
  • Passengers who are not fully vaccinated arriving in Jersey will be required to be tested upon arrival (day 0) and on day 8, and will need to isolate until their first negative test result
  • Children aged 11-17 will be required to be tested upon arrival (day 0) and on day 8, and will need to isolate until their first negative test result
  • Children aged 10 and under will not be required to complete a pre-departure registration form, undergo testing on arrival or be required to isolate
  • Enhanced testing and isolation will remain in place for the very small number of passengers who have visited very high-risk countries (those subject to the UK travel ban) in the 10 days prior to arrival regardless of vaccination status
  • All passengers travelling to Jersey aged 11 years and over will still be required to complete a pre-departure registration form 48 hours before travelling
